PS3 wont stay on


Your PS3 may be overheating. Check the exhaust of the ps3 where the hot air comes out for any excessive dust. If you have a 60GB PS3, you can blow them out by turning off the PS3 by the back switch and then turning it on using the back switch with you finger on the eject button. The PS3 should beep 3 times and your fans should go at full tilt for about 30sec to 1 min.

Ps3 is freezing after 10-15 min have taken mach. apart and cleaned, seems as if fan is running


Try new heatsink paste on the CPU and GPU. Sounds like you are having a heat problem. Check how hot the power supply box is getting as i have replaced a few that got extremely hot and would make the PS3 shutdown, no video, frozen screen ect. If it is the power supply there are a few places you can purchase them online. Good Luck.

Power switch


get the hard drive replaced. it has the system on it and when your mom dropped the ps3 it jolted the hard drive and likely killed it.

send it back to sony. it will cost you quite a bit to do that.

ps. the board is also probably cracked and may have other damages that cannot be seen.

bottom line: DO NOT DROP ANY TYPE OF ELECTRONICS. THEY DON'T LIKE IT!!! :)
